Le journal d'une femme de chambre - cinema review
directed by Luis Buñuel, starring Michel Piccoli, Jeanne Moreau, Georges Géret
b/w, 97', 35mm Italian dubbed version
1929. Célestine, from Paris, is working as a maid in a country mansion full of bizarre characters: the landlord is a sex addict, the landlady is frigid and snobbish and the gardener is a fascist. Based on Octave Mirbeau's novel, director Buñuel unleashes his caustic, anti-middle-class wit on both the servants and the masters, the young and the old, the revolutionaries and the conservatives. A hilarious study in wickedness, starring the provocative and beautiful Jeanne Moreau.
